The end of Minigore! Finally!

Sorry for this rough title but...
let's start from the very beginning. Months ago there was an announcement for Minigore - and it sounded epic - now the game is out. And personally for me and some of my friends it was a big disappointment... Yeah it is addictive and Yes it is fun but there is still so much to do..And only one level?
Anyway I love dual stick shooter Alive 4 Ever and so on - great stuff!

But still Minigore is hyped like hell... I don’t get it is in the style? the artworks? the advertising?

But now I think minigores time is over

there are several great games

Guerrilla Bob (http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=42712)
Pirate's Gold (http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=38390)
and many many more...

Do you think, (like me) that we can expect a new great hit? and if not, then why..

would love to hear what you think

many games

Okay, aside from just saying that Minigore is great, let me substantiate.

Firstly, I've played iDracula, Alive-4-Ever, and Minigore. for some reason, I just keep coming back to Minigore.

Personally, I really like the art. It's nice and cute, compared to Alive-4-Ever's 2D top down style. And for some reason, I just find the gameplay more satisfying in Minigore. It's just fun to mow down hordes of Furries, as opposed to having to pump multiple shots into a single enemy in Guerilla Bob. The simplicity of Minigore, just keep aiming for the highscore, is quite addictive for some people. That, and the 1 000 000 kills to unlock a character.

Next, I've come to believe that the developers do keep their promises of future updates, however slowly. More DLC, more unlockables. This'll keep the gameplay going for much longer; I haven't seen this regular-ish follow up from any other dual stick shooters.

I used to think that Minigore sucked, but after a few updates and experience with other games, I appreciate the simplicity of it all, the art style, and the unlockables. And definitely, the prospective DLC. And don't tell me it isn't coming; the developers have proved themselves trustworthy, unlike many others who promise updates that never come.

Now, I'm open to a new dual-stick shooter any day. I did buy Guerilla Bob, and I must say it's quite a decent game. It's a different experience enough, worth the asking price, but I've finished it already, and I'm back to Minigore.

God, please stop with these "X game is dead" thread". A GAME IS STILL FUN EVEN IF A BETTER GAME COMES OUT! Ok, you got that? Just because a game is better, doesn't mean you have to hate the other game and stop playing it. There will always be a better game. Like all these people saying that Eliminate is dead because of Nova etc, no it's not. Eliminate is fun, and so is Nova. No reason at all why you can't play both. Minigore is still fun, regardless if a better twin stick shooter comes out.

I've played Guerrilla Bob now and my thoughts on the game beforehand were pretty much correct... it IS a good game, but once you've done the story you're left relying on survival for your kicks, and that mode just doesn't hold up quite as well as Minigore's does.

Guerrilla Bob and Pirate's Gold are not even ranked on any chart.

To use FPS as an analogy I would say that Guerilla Bob is Nova and Minigore is COD zombies. Both are good in it's own right one has campaign and the other one has survival but when it comes to replayability Minigore and Cod wins!

Hell, why does everyone have to compare Minigore with Guerrilla Bob etc.? THEY ARE DIFFERENT, **** it.

All these comparisons are REALLY annoying.
But I've tried many dual stick shooters and Minigore is clearly the best.

While Minigore is still a demo (although a beautiful one),
Guerilla Bob is a GAME. Highly enjoying this one....spending more than 5 minutes in a row playing.
